The Benefit Great Brownanza! Blockbuster Brow Set, $79, is a $200 value full of Benefit’s best brow products. I’m a huge fan of the Goof Proof pencil for 2-minute brows, and the classic Gimme Brow product.

The BITE Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lip Set, $26, is a steal for four shades of the Canadian cult beauty fave!

Beauty Blender Goldmine, $50, is a great set for flawless makeup application. I love that it has two full sponges (already worth it), the cleanser solid and the blotting tool!

Clarins Spring 2017: Skincare review

clarins spring 2017 products (1 of 8)

It’s currently -9C in Ottawa, and over the past few chilly weeks, I’ve completely fallen in love with the new Hydra-Essentiel line. Every other day, I use the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream for Normal to Combination skin. This cream is incredibly lightweight but very refreshing. It works great overnight after cleansing the face, but is light enough to wear under makeup as well. I take a pea sized amount with a q-tip and spread it over my face and neck, and my skin feels plump and silky smooth. I’ve noticed that I no longer have flaky skin around my nose! This product is scented, however I find the scent to be gentle and very lovely!
